Inspired by my favourite little ted, I decided to have a go at recreating him in icing, albeit not quite in the same colour.

I had originally intended this to be blue icing, but as I started to mix in the colouring, a beautiful aqua marine shade shone through which I decided to use. Once little ted was finished I needed to find somewhere for him to sit……

I decided that a  simple 10 inch square cake covered in white icing and accented with lettered squares based on childrens building blocks would make a delightful christening cake. To finish it off I made a rattle and a pair of little booties to sit next to teddy and then added a couple of strips of matching ribbon.
